Still Don’t Know What To Say? More Real Estate Blog Topics

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with James Colucci Enterprises

We've discussed blog topic ideas in the past, but many of you have mentioned that you're still stuck. To help you out, we've compiled another list that may help your creative juices flow.

Mortgages: It's at the top of every buyer and seller's mind these days. From how to get out of a bad mortgage to how to choose the right one for you, you can't go wrong with a mortgage topic on a real estate blog.

Moving Tips: If you're selling someone a home, they're going to move into it. If you're helping someone sell a home, they're going to move out of it. Moving tips for buyers and sellers are a great idea, and whether you want to talk about the pros and cons of moving companies in your area or demonstrate the best way to pack a box with a youtube clip embedded in your post, virtually everyone dealing with a real estate agent could use a few moving blogs.

Make Your Job Easier: If you've ever told your kids to walk a mile in someone else's shoes, you understand why this kind of post might be helpful. Most people have no idea how to help you do the best job possible, and creating a blog or two about how buyers and sellers can turn you into the most effective realtor on the block won't just attract readers, it may save you some time as well. Let them know how incredibly annoying it can be to have a client call you twelve times in an hour. Let them know what information you must know before you put a home on the market. Essentially, let them walk a mile in your shoes. Just be sure to be nice while you're doing it.

Website Reviews: This could get out of hand in a hurry, so keep your goals in mind, but don't hesitate to review relevant sites in a post. Let buyers know some good sites to review information about architectural styles. Let sellers know about good sites that may help them prep their home for next week's open house.  Attract potential out of town buyers to the area by reviewing local restaurant websites. There are thousands of websites your readers don't want to have to sort through, and you can help by playing tour guide.

Interviews: Grab the head of a local homeowner's association, the school board secretary, or a local volunteer. Ask them questions your blog readers might want to ask, and create a post or two out of it. Take things one step further by embedding an mp3 of the interview at the end of the blog so readers can hear the actual interview for themselves.

Don't stare at that white screen any longer than you have to. There are thousands of things your readers both want and need to know, and your blog can give it to them.

Good list - sometimes writers block just sort of creeps up and grabs you. Keeping it interesting can sometimes be a challenge. It would probably be easier if I had some talent.

Thanks for the list.  We want to keep our blogs sharp and sometimes miss what we should be writting about.
